Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been dominant in his first few years in the league, and there’s one stat that may make Cincinnati Bengals fans nervous about their chances in the AFC Championship Game.

Mahomes and the Chiefs are seven-point favorites in this game at WynnBET, and while I’m backing Joe Burrow and company as I explained on our Best Bets video this week, there’s one stat that shows just how good Mahomes is. 

In Mahomes’ 10 playoff games, he is 8-2. However, he is a perfect 8-0 when he doesn’t have to face Tom Brady, arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. Brady defeated Mahomes in the AFC title game with the New England Patriots and in the Super Bowl last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Mahomes orchestrated an amazing comeback against the Buffalo Bills, as he was able to get the Chiefs into field goal range despite having just 13 seconds to do so. He then went on to win the game in overtime to advance to the AFC title game

When you look at some of the quarterbacks Mahomes has beaten in the playoffs, it gets even more impressive.

Joe Burrow and the Bengals are 5-1 against the spread as road underdogs this season, but they will have their work cut out for them to take down Mahomes on Sunday. If they don’t you can add Burrow to the list of quarterbacks that Mahomes has taken down in his young playoff career.

Peter Dewey’s betting record is 30-22 (9.383 units) in the NFL this season. You can find all of his picks here.
